FAQs for Parent/Tot Skate
1.) Does it have to be the same parent on the ice each time? Yes it needs to be the same parent each time as the club needs to register this parent with Skate Canada for liability reasons.
2.) Does the parent need to wear skates on the ice? Yes the parent needs to wear skates. Boots/shoes will not be accepted.
3.) Does the parent need to wear a helmet on the ice? A helmet is not mandatory for the parent. The child must wear a helmet.
4.) Does the parent need to know how to skate? Yes, the parent needs to know how to skate. They are there to reinforce the instructions and skills being taught to the child; to assist them if they fall and cannot get up.
5.) Why are the fees set at $300? Due to the Weyburn Skating Club having to register both participant and the parent we have to charge 2 Skate Saskatchewan fees at $40 each, and 2 Skate Canada fees at $43.65. This will ensure that both participant and parent are covered with insurance if something were to happen during the time on the ice.
6.) Will siblings be able to be in the stands for the 30 minutes during the Parent/Tot session? At this time siblings cannot be in the stands. If the guidelines from the City of Weyburn change we can revisit this guideline.

8.) What days will these sessions run? At this time the Weyburn Skating Club will be running this program on Tuesday's from 6:30pm - 7:00pm for a 10 week period starting October 13, 2020.
